What is the average length of a bullfight?

It can take many years and a considerable amount of money to become a matador. Most start in their teens or even earlier. They begin as a becerista - one who fights calves. At this stage the person may actually have to pay to fight. Once they improve they become a novillero - one who fights bulls that are not yet the full four years of age required for a matador. As he gains experience and a following he may take the alternativa or graduation to the rank of full matador de toros under the sponsorship of a veteran matador. Then he is eligible to compete with other full matadors in major bullrings if he can get the contracts. At this stage, some find that they are unable to find much work and may renounce their alternativa and return to the rank as novillero where they may find more work but less money.
